Another "Trois Oranges"

For this one, I kept the darks thin so it gives a rougher texture and the background color (dark blue) shows through. The lights are thicker as well as the reflections on the surface. It gives a smoother texture. I like the values and overall, I'm happy with this one.

I like this a lot. Seems to be great depth that is not entirely due to just the placement of the three oranges.
